The harp can have a gentle but also aggressive, balanced and very harmonically rich sound, depending on the play. Please take the sound example, below in supplementary information.
These harps are forged for centuries in the same way by hand. The blacksmith which manufacture this lives on a mountain in the Maramures Mountains and is one of the last smiths in Europe, which manufacture this harps like last some hundred years. He really leads from each step of the wire to the finished jaw harp by hand, because no electricity or other modern tools are available. Each piece is absolutely unique, so the picture may vary slightly.

The jaw harp is one of the oldest known instruments.
